The Honest Co. Shampoo + Body Wash & Conditioner | Review

The Honest Co. Shampoo + Body Wash & Conditioner | Review

The Honest Company is one of my favorite affordable go-to brands for personal care and home care products. I’ve gone through a few bottles of the Honest Shampoo + Body Wash and the Honest Conditioner. They both come in three beautiful scents: Sweet Orange Vanilla, Dreamy Lavender, and Apricot Kiss (Unscented has JUST been released as well). For under ten bucks a bottle, and great ingredients you really can’t go wrong.

 EWG gives a rating of 1 (1 being nontoxic and 10 being toxic) to the shampoo and a rating of 2 to the conditioner.

 The shampoo lathers and suds wonderfully. The conditioner is creamy and moisturizing without being heavy of leaving a residue. (It also works great for shaving!) Both working together leaves my hair clean and soft for the day. A lot of the time I struggled to get two days of clean hair from this duo. If you prefer to wash daily anyways, then that’s ok.

 I love the design of the packaging. Not only are the graphics cute, but I love the pump on the bottle as well. It makes it easier to get a controlled, consistent amount out.

Do you have a favorite non-toxic hair care products? What should I try next?

Graydon Face + Body Travel Essentials | Review + Giveaway!

Graydon Skin Care is a Canadian brand great for label readers like me. The ingredients are natural, nontoxic, cruelty-free, chemical and synthetic free, and organic whenever possible. Each product is made with luxury and pampering in mind. Both the packaging and the product inside are beautiful to use as well as display on your shelves or countertops. These face and body travel essential samples are nothing short of lovely.

Aloe Milk Cleanser

Most of the time I prefer soapless facial cleansers like oils, creams or balms. This Aloe Milk Cleanser is a cream cleanser and makeup remover all in one. It leaves the skin feeling smooth, clean and hydrated.

Elements

This sunscreen is made from zinc rather than chemicals. Not only is your skin protected from the sun’s hot rays, Seabuckthorn oil and aloe juice help to nourish your skin as well. The formula is a slightly thick one. It works well on the body, but it’s not something I would want to wear on my face in the hot weather.

All Over Face + Body Lotion

This lotion smells of lavender and rosemary. Yum! It is very moisturizing, yet light weight. It works well as both a body lotion and a face lotion. I’ve noticed as a face lotion it has a slightly dewy finish. If I were to wear makeup over time I might use a couple extra mattifying products to keep foundation/concealer in place.

All Over Soap + Shampoo

I decided to try this out as a shampoo. It doesn’t suds up quite as much as I’d like and it leaves almost a waxy feeling when rinsing it out, but when my hair dries it feels really clean, healthy and a bit thicker. I haven’t tried it as a body or face soap yet, but I think it is gentle enough so your skin won’t feel stripped and tight.

Hair Smoothie

This conditioner can be used as a mask, regular conditioner as well as a leave-in conditioner for dry ends. I’ve only tried it as a regular in shower conditioner. It doesn’t feel as creamy as I’d prefer but it detangles really well. After I’ve rinsed it out, my hair feels really soft and manageable.

Each of these 5 products is wonderfully made and very effective. These are ones that I would go for in full size. I would love to share how awesome this brand it with you.

Shikai Natural Everyday Shampoo & Conditioner | Review

Shikai Natural Everyday Shampoo & Conditioner | Review

When I was little, my mom used Shikai shampoo and conditioner a lot. These bottles were a common occupant of the ledge in our shower. I’d forgotten all about it, so when I opened and smelled these two bottles, all the memories of stealing her shampoo every so often came back. I love the smell but it’s hard to describe; sort of herbally and clean.

Shikai Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner works well for just that, everyday use. I prefer to shampoo my hair every other day, rather than every day. In the long run, doing it that way make my hair feel healthier, but these two couldn’t keep my hair clean for more than a day. When using the shampoo and conditioner every day my hair felt soft and clean…for the day of course.

The EWG Skin Deep rating is okay but could be better. They both score a 4 (1 being safe, 10 being unhealthy).

Do you have any favorite Shikai Products? Please share in the comments!

Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner | Review

Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner | Review

I often get tired of using the same products over and over again so while making an iHerb order, I took a browse around their sample section. Desert Essence‘s Coconut shampoo and conditioner caught my eye.

Both of these smell INCREDIBLE! Like a tropical, coconut, summery, paradise island. Yum Yum Yum!

My hair responded quite well to them. I prefer to shampoo my hair every other day, and on the off days, my hair did not get oily or gross. The moisture-rich texture of the conditioner kept my hair reasonably manageable and smooth.

EWG has given Dessert Essence’s Coconut shampoo a score of 5. I am a bit disappointed by that. The majority of the ingredients and pretty safe and organic, but there are a couple of things that bump that number up.

The same can be said for the conditioner, although EWG has given it a score of 4.

I really enjoyed using both of these. Despite the high EWG toxicity scores, I would still repurchase these. I would also love to try other products by Desert Essence.

Juice Organics Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner | Review

Juice Organics Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner | Review

Another installment in my journey to detoxify my lifestyle…

In the past, I have tried a few shampoos and conditioners from the natural section in Wegmans. As I am learning more about ingredients that are used to make our personal care products, I am finding that those products that I tried may not have been as clean as I thought or am now looking for. I also didn’t like the results I got from those products. To me, they felt weak and thin.

Juice Organics “Brightening Shampoo & Conditioner” Is the cleanest set I’ve tried, and I am really happy with it!  The majority of the ingredients are certified organic. The few nonorganic ingredients have good ratings on EWG’s Skin Deep database. The Shampoo and Conditioner score a rating of two each on the Skin Deep database.

The two products smell delicious as well! I have become quite sensitive to synthetic fragrances. It has been a nice change of pace to have something with a real fragrance that I enjoy rather than the artificial scents that make me feel sick.

When using a shampoo I don’t feel like it is cleaning unless there are suds. Juice Organics Brightening Shampoo creates all of the suds I could need. It also keeps my hair clean. I prefer to wash my hair every other day and with this set, my roots stay clean for those two days without the need for a dry shampoo.

Juice Organics Brightening Conditioner is the thickest, creamiest conditioner I’ve ever used. That makes me very happy! My hair is always knotty and I get split ends easily. This moisturizing conditioner works the knots out of my hair with ease and it keeps my hair feeling soft and silky! If one wishes, it can be left in for a few minutes to be used as a hydrating mask.

The shampoo and conditioner are also meant to be interchangeable. If you have really fine hair that is easily weighed down you can use the conditioner fist, then the shampoo to wash out the weight. Personally, I prefer using the duo in the regular order.

The bottles are HUGE! A couple of ounces larger than a normal bottle of shampoo or conditioner.

I left these in the shower for my family to try. It went over with great success!

I also gave a couple of sample packets a try. They both smelled amazing! But I didn’t care for how they made my hair feel. The Volumizing Shampoo caused my hair be more prone to knots than it is on a regular day. They conditioner did not help to remove those knots. The Repairing shampoo and conditioner didn’t do a whole lot better at dealing with my knots. I also found that my roots became oily quite quickly.

I am very happy with the Brightening shampoo and conditioner! I would repurchase and I recommend trying it out!
